It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Top celebrity stories of 2007

Forty years after the classic song "Sweet Caroline" was released, Neil Diamond  finally revealed that President John F. Kennedy's daughter, Caroline Kennedy, [then 11 years old - F. G.] was its inspiration. He told the Associated Press in November that he wrote the song after seeing a photo of Caroline with her pony, perhaps similar to the photo at left.

'Sweet Caroline' gone from Penn State playlist

Penn State's home opener on Saturday will be missing a game-day staple: "Sweet Caroline."

The Altoona Mirror reports http://bit.ly/TiVZAA that school officials decided to eliminate the Neil Diamond sing-along hit from the Beaver Stadium playlist because of its lyrics: "Hands, touching hands, reaching out, touching me, touching you."

The song could be awkward in light of the Jerry Sandusky child-sex scandal.

However, Associate Athletic Director Greg Myford says that while the lyrics were discussed, "Sweet Caroline" had been on the bubble for several years because the song has no real connection to Penn State. He says "it simply became easier to rotate out in order to try something else."

Diamond has said he wrote the song in tribute to President John F. Kennedy's daughter, Caroline

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
